The tile in Talnin's pocket shatters unbidden, and a portal opens up next to the two. Greel stands at the other end. "We have an urgent issue. Return immediately. You can continue this later."
Before either get the chance to speak, they're pulled through the portal, landing back in Greel's office. The Mind Raker wastes no time in dragging their current results from their mind. "Not bad. At least you have a lead." A small pouch of gold is slid across the table. "For now, take this as a reward."
Quest closed temporarily. Both of you get get 3 XP and 75 gold for now, with options to resume at a later date.

If they go deeper into the mountains, it'd head away from both the akki and the visible bandit's camp.
The akki leader doesn't look too pleased at his spell being stopped, though it's a little hard to see at this distance. As the griffins get further away, the mage takes a last shot at stopping them; a spiraling line of flame arcs towards the griffin that Eavath's on.
